Question about Garden
I was mowing the lawn and engine stalled. I determined it was getting fire to the spark plugs. I traced the fuel through the filter to the pump and then replaced the pump without checking the old one. I then removed the fuel line from the carb and cranked the engine - no fuel came out the line. The engine was very low on oil so I filled that thinking the oil pressure switch may have stopped the engine. Any ideas on what I can do to get this running.
Stating the obvious when the fuel line is off the carb and the engine is cranked there should be fuel coming from the hose, if not the pump is not working, there is normally three conections on the pump, fuel in, fuel out, and pulse from the engine, this hose takes a pulse from the rise and fall of the piston in the cylinder, make sure the hoses are connected corectly and tight, if there is still no fuel check the inline fuel filter ( if fitted ) is not blocked, if all appears ok, then it can only be a faulty pump.

does it turn over slow or fast if it turns slowly thats the problem so it could be battery or starter they have to have a good amount of rpms to burn fuel right when starting if not it floods out the engine with gas hope this helps thanks wade

Spray starting fluid into the air box if it starts and dies out there is a fuel delivery problem if the mower has a petcock fuel shut of valve disconnect the fuel line after the petcock and hold a container under the hose turn on the valve to ensure gas flow to carb if there is no petcock valve I would still check the line to carb make sure gas flows through the hose to carb.

The things you have checked and replaced are not relevant to fault have you described. Only two things are left, Battery and Starter, most probablly your battery is not charged ot it is old enough to hold the charge. If your battery is ok then only and only your Starter is bad , but I think your Battery is bad or not charged. get it charged and then try, if it does not then replace or get the Starter serviced

I had a similar problem and found that the float was hanging up on the wall of the carb fuel chamber. I sanded lightly the outer edge of the float and never had the problem again. That was 3 years ago. Having a different problem now. After setting overnight in cold weather, 20's, engine turns over very slowly even with a new battery. Engine starts, but barely. Once running, everything seems fine. After shutoff, engine restarts quickly. Next morning, same thing happens. Anyone have any thoughts?
